Sandra Kaye Malone, a native of Jackson, MI and a resident of Silverhill, AL, passed away on Sunday, June 19, 2022, at the age of 77.
Sandra was an amazing seamstress and made everything from Halloween costumes to elaborate western riding apparel, including blankets for her horses. Everything she did and made was from the heart and took time and thought. She traveled all over the United States showing horses and brough home several Grand Champion trophies. Not only did she show horses, but she bred and raised German Shepherds and Corgis. She had a great sense of humor and always called herself “the mean old white woman”. Her laugh would fill a room and was one of the most memorable laughs. She started many years ago with “Don’t make me call my mom”, and it has carried over for generations. She was never afraid to put her mind to something and when she did, she achieved it every time.
She is preceded in death by her father, Donald Champion, her mother, Nora Henning, and brother, Donald Champion.
She is survived by her loving husband of 58 years, Ted Malone; two daughters, Melissa Allen and Angela Dunn (Kevin), both of Jackson, MI; three grandchildren, Shelby Allen, Ciara Allen and Kayelee Dunn; and two great-grandchildren, Scarlette Bannister and Remington Fouty.

She was the most wonderful giving and caring person I had the pleasure of knowing. We had known each other since 1992 but got closer about 2 years ago. She was always there for me helped me out when I was down and got mad at me when paid her back (had to do it in bandit membership lol)
I was Thelma she was Louise actually both of us were a bit of both.
I had never met Sandra until the day before she passed. Neither one of us thought of facetiming lol. But it was an honor to finally meet her.
She and I were always partners in the games at online bandit except when I was working and couldn’t make it.
We laughed so much she almost had an accident lol.
She would always tell me “Ted knows I’m online with you lol” because I always had her laughing.
She was and always will be my best friend, my sister, and my Louise.
She was always there for me and I love her for that two total strangers so to speak only knowing each other by the website and became the best of friends. Thank you Partylady
Missy and Ted you know she will be there with you and the rest of your family forever and is kept alive from your memories and life that you had with her. I am glad I was a part of her life.
My heart goes out to you all. And if ever you need anything you have my number.
She was an amazing mom and bonus mom to all the kids who came into her home❤️
Her laugh will stay with us forever
We know that Sandee was loved and respected by many. She was an character and had such a good sense of humor, Spending time with her telling stories, especially about herself and her hubby and then that laugh of hers which will never be forgotten was so enjoyable.

I didn’t know Sandee that well, but what I did know of her, she was truly a card! I hadn’t realized that they had moved to Alabama. Much love and prayers to Ted, Missy, and Angel.
